Wtf is this? you post all of this yet don't even touch upon the characters who really are modelled after Bowie? Resident Evil Zero for example features a character who intendedly looks like Bowie. 
 
Not to Mention Omikron: The Nomad Sould which features his music. Edit: Ah ok, so you found the weird picture of him in Omikron. That pick of him always freaked me out.

I don't see the Raiden connection, but I get all the others and this is seriously creeping me out.

I dunno... I can see some of them, but I think a lot of them are coincidental. After all, the dude's been around and had a lot of looks... some of them were bound to sync up to some characters.

I think we need some dates before we declare Bowie the daddy of all game characters.

Bowie was big into androgeny and a bit of a femme, the Japanese make a lot of androgenous male characters, thats all.

Gackt = Cloud, Squall, Zidane and Tidus, seriously. All of his fashion styles match up to the times that those FF games were made.

Ha, I never matched Teddie with that album cover. Basically, David Bowie is as close as you will get to living anime.

The man is a living fashion icon, can't be that surprising that he has made an impact in the video-game world. Even if most of these images are just for the lulz.

Well on the evidence of that his other worldly looks have indeed inspired the character design of many. He has been one of those artists that expiriments with his looks and clothing, and that must make him a good source for inspiration.

David Bowie is probably one of the two persons (the other being Lemmy Kilmister) I can think of that is made completely out of win, awesome and joy. Another evidence, phew.

One of those wasn't a video game character. And this is hardly "every video game character." Nowhere close.

Actually, you meant to say David Bowie inspired most shitty boy-girl characters from Final Fantasy.
 
And yes, all the pictures of him, its his vast power of being able to leap across many areas in entertainment through the years.

The secret truth is almost every single Japanophile I know (male and female, but mostly female) also either currently loves David Bowie, or went through a time in their life when they were obsessed with David Bowie, or both.
 
My point is, David Bowie is a major part of exported Japanese culture. Even though he's British.
 
Don't ask me how that works.
 
 
Man, I love starting forum posts with the phrase "The secret truth is ____________".

LOL!
 
It's too bad he doesn't put out any albums anymore. There was Reality
in 2004 which I saw the tour.  Towards the end of the tour he had to
have a bypass. After that, he hasn't bothered to produce anymore 
albums. I guess he's unofficially retired. Pity.
